Launched just last night, Popcorn Palace’s new and improved website (popcornpalace.com) makes finding and buying your favorite gourmet popcorn couldn’t be easier!
The bolder, brighter website features bigger, more appetizing pictures of our popcorn. We are also pleased to announce that we’ve introduced seven new flavors, which include: Berry Your Blues, Fleur de Sel and Ginger Caramel Rogers to celebrate our new site.   
And while the new site has more convenient navigation and a simplified shopping process for consumers, it also makes life simpler for our fundraising folk. The redesigned fundraising section allows you to manage your account through a dashboard, giving you a convenient account overview.

Popcorn Palace + Aberdeen YMCA Childcare Center = $uce$$!

7 Oct
“We love fundraisers l like [Popcorn Palace]. Everyone loves popcorn!” 

Amy Severson, the preschool teacher for the YMCA Childcare Center in Aberdeen, SD, for the past 19 years, doesn’t quite remember how she became in charge of the fundraising program, but has been doing it for the many years.

The center takes care of infants from six weeks up to six-year-old children, and another building houses a program for school-aged children. In the past, they hadn’t had very many parents participate in their fundraisers and so, Severson was looking for a change. 
My children went to stay with their aunt and came home and told me about some chocolate-drizzled popcorn they had and loved,” she says. I Googled “popcorn fundraising” and that’s how I found Popcorn Palace.”  
Severson says that the product sells itself: “With this past popcorn fundraiser, we heard a story about someone’s grandparents grumbling about the price of the popcorn, but after they received it they were begging us to tell them how they could get some more! We love fundraisers l like that. Everyone loves popcorn!” They do, indeed!
